What did they attempt to address in the small scale sell off?

Regardless, there weren’t any holes that the last year’s second place needed to fill. Delhi Capitals went through a to a great extent calm night at the WPL sell off table for this season. There were not many open positions after releasing only three players, including left-arm pacer Tara Norris, a USA international.
